Lieblingszitate von kürzlich freigelassenen Büchern:

"Los viejos contemplan el cielo con ojos pensativos desde la ventana o el banco delante de la casa, porque les parece que por el aire transparente vuelan visibles no sólo los recuerdos amables del año sino los de toda su vida."
Bajo las ruedas, Hermann Hesse

"Certainly those determining acts of her life were not ideally beautiful. They were the mixed results of a young and noble impulse struggling amidst the conditions of an imperfect social state, in which great feelings will often take the aspect of error, and great faith the aspect of illusion."
Middlemarch, George Eliot

"Das chinesische Engagement ist für viele afrikanische Regierungen eine attraktive Option. Peking und die großen chinesischen Unternehmen stellen keine unangenehmen Fragen über Menschenrechte, sie verlangen keine Wirtschaftsreform und schlagen schon gar nicht vor, dass bestimmte afrikanische Führer aufhören sollten, sich das Vermögen ihrer Länder anzueignen, wie das der WIF oder die Weltbank tun könnten."
Die Macht der Geographie, Tim Marshall

"In May 1988 the Soviets began a staged withdrawal from Afghanistan, signaling the end of the war. Slowly, Peshawar shrank back into its shabby former self, and the Afghan mujahideen leaders started stockpiling weapons, preparing to confront their inevitable new enemies - each other. "
The Looming Tower, Lawrence Wright

"As it was impossible however now to prevent their coming, Lady Middleton resigned herself to the idea of it, with all the philosophy of a well bred woman, contenting herself with merely giving her husband a gentle reprimand on the subject five or six times every day."
Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen

"I have seen people get rid of a good deal of other people's money, and bear it very well: very well indeed."
Little Dorrit, Charles Dickens

"Allein Wal-Mart importiert chinesische Waren im Wert von zwölf Milliarden Dollar. Damit ist dieses Unternehmen einer der größten Handelspartner Chinas, größer als Rußland oder Großbritannien."
Volle Deckung, Mr. Bush: »Dude, Where's My Country?«, Michael Moore

"But if the man sloughs off his tiredness, and lives his fate through, he can then be called a man of knowledge, if only for the brief moment when he succeeds in fighting off his last, invincible enemy. That moment of clarity, power, and knowledge is enough."
The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, Carlos Castaneda

"Offenbar schwand mit der Zahl der Verbrechen auch ihre strafrechtliche Verwerfbarkeit: Ein Mord führt in die Zelle, tausend Morde, zehntausend Morde aber führen in den internationalen Konferenzsaal."
Gesichter des Bösen, Till Zimmermann & Nikolas Dörr

"Natürlich kein Wort gegen Kraushaar-Raffaeli, der ist Ausländer; nein, ich meine die inländischen, die von Utzenstorf und Merligen. Entweder schreiben sie Dramen über die Schlacht am Morgarten und Niklaus Manuel, oder sie malen nichts als Berge."
Der Richter und sein Henker, Friedrich Dürrenmatt

"Drosnin claimed that in 1994 he'd found a coded message warning of Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, a year before Rabin was murdered by a religious extremist. The US media went crazy for the book at first, drawn to its claims that the Bible predicted the JFK assassination and that the Code clearly indicated the apocalypse would take place in 2006. The mania surrounding the book quickly faded when an Australian computer scientist demonstrated that the Rabin assassination was also predicted in "Moby Dick". "
Have a Nice Doomsday, Nicholas Guyatt

"Yes, there was a sort of refuge which always comes with the prostration of thought under an overpowering passion: it was that expectation of impossibilities, that belief in contradictory images, which is still distinct from madness, because it is capable of being dissipated by the external fact."
Silas Marner, George Eliot

"The bourgeoisie represent satisfied demands. Yesterday there was appetite; today there is abundance; tomorrow there will be surfeit."
Les Misérables, Victor Hugo

"Pea checker: This job entailed literally watching conveyor belts full of peas and looking out for black ones. When you stand up you feel as though everything around you is moving, even though it's not. And you get a hole in your visual field for green, so everything looks redder than it was after an eight-hour shift. Miserable."
Crap Jobs, Dan Kieran

(Mary Crawford): "'I am come to make my own apologies for keeping you waiting - but I have nothing in the world to say for myself- I knew it was very late, and that I was behaving extremely ill; and, therefore, if you please, you must forgive me. Selfishness must always be forgiven you know, because there is no hope of a cure'."
Mansfield Park, Jane Austen

"So in return for our coming to treat them like brothers, and tell them the commands of our lord God and the King, they were planning to kill us and eat our flesh, and had already prepared the pots with salt and peppers and tomatoes."
The Conquest of New Spain, Bernal Díaz

"La palabra "imperio" remite a ideas diferentes que, por lo demás, han ido cambiando con el paso del tiempo. Bastará con recordar que ha sido utilizada para identificar realidades muy distintas entre las cuales se cuentan, sin afán alguno de cerrar la cuestión, políticas agresivas de Estados poco respetuosos de los derechos de los vecinos - tal fue el caso de la desplegada por la Francia de Luis Napoleón - , rivalidades que acarrean disputas sobre lo que ocurre en la periferia del planeta (Hilferding), estadios superiores del desarrollo del capitalismo (Lenin), reflejos del militarismo propio de la nobleza europea (Schumpeter), necesidades de colocación del excedente de capital generado en los países centrales (Hobson), secuelas de la colaboración entre las elites de estos últimos y las de la periferia (Robinson), o designios de cerrar determinadas partes de la economía-mundo a la codicia de los competidores."
¿Hacia dónde nos lleva Estados Unidos?, Carlos Taibo

"Ein Mann steht im Wald, ganz allein, um ihn herum kein Mensch, keine lebende Seele: Ist er trotzdem schuldig?"
Kommt ein Pferd in die Bar, David Grossman

"Ich sage, daß die Flamen Niederländisch sprächen, aber in der Melodie des Französischen: die Wörter aneinandergeklebt, mit stimmlosem h, am Ende der Sätze eine Anhebung der Tonhöhe; und daß ich mir als Niederländer manchmal ein Lächeln nicht verkneifen könne, wenn ich die Flamen wüten hörte, denn sie sträubten sich gegen französische Wörter, obwohl dagegen doch nichts einzuwenden sei, und diesen Widerstand formulierten sie in dieser französischen Melodie, was noch idiotischer sei, das schienen sie aber witzigerweise ganz und gar nicht zu merken."
Augenstern, Harry Mulisch

"In the poorest spots the hedges were bowed with haws and blackberries; acorns cracked underfoot, and the burst husks of chestnuts lay exposing their auburn contents as if arranged by anxious sellers in a fruit-market. In all this proud show some kernels were unsound as her own situation, and she wondered if there were one world in the universe where the fruit had no worm, and marriage no sorrow."
The Woodlanders, Thomas Hardy

"Obviously, farming was out of the question before Homo (Sapiens) had learnt to predict the seasons. If he did not anticipate autumn and winter following summer, he might well have filled himself in the season of mellow fruitfulness and then starved to death over the ensuing months."
Time, Alexander Waugh

"Nichts ist nämlich weniger aufsehenerregend als eine Seuche, und schon durch ihre Dauer sind grosse Unglücke eintönig. In der Erinnerung jener, die sie miterlebt haben, erscheinen die schrecklichen Tage der Pest nicht als grandiose und graumsame hohe Flamme, sondern eher als ein endloser Leerlauf, der alles zermalmte."
Die Pest, Albert Camus

"Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure of being kindly spoken of."
Emma, Jane Austen

"Era [en 1945] un mundo destrozado con abundancia, que contaba de nuevo sus bajas por millones, que descubría los horrores y las cifras del holocausto judío junto a planes de matanzas y aniquilación, que produjo deportaciones de pueblos enteros y amputaciones territoriales y convenció a la humanidad de que, en cualquier caso, la tercera guerra mundial sería la última."
Breve historia del siglo XX, Fernando García de Cortázar

"Perhaps 65 million years from now, intelligent rats will look back gratefully on the decimation wrought by humankind, just as we today can thank that dinosaur-busting asteroid."
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari
